More about the project...

INSIDE a global art project allowing people all over the world to use photographic portraits to tell their stories in the streets. Black and white images are made into posters, pasted in public to encourage community dialogue and archived online for the world to see: 

INSIDE OUT London is starting in Peckham...a neighbourhood that was hit hard by the recent riots.This project will showcase to the world who the Peckham community truly is. There are countless stories of local residents who have acted as heroes in the face of what happened. It is this pride for our community that makes us want to shift the conversation to who we really are so that together, we can start to rebuild.

The gathering of these stories and images has begun. On Saturday August 27th, Peckham will come together to paste these portraits in the streets and celebrate the strength, resilience and bond that the community now shares.
